There have been so many things I almost didn’t do because of fear.
So many opportunities to use my God given gifts and abilities, I came so close to saying no. I was afraid I wouldn’t be good enough, afraid I would fail.
I was relying on my own strength and abilities. On my own I will fail.
Sometimes God called us to impossible things, because He is a possible God.
GOD gives us our gifts and abilities, He gives us what we need when we rely on Him.
The world’s standard of success is not God’s. God doesn’t care so much about the end result; He works in the process. That is where we learn to trust.
“Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you. So I will bless you as long as I live; in your name I will lift up my hands. My soul will be satisfied as with fat and rich food, and my mouth will praise you with joyful lips, when I remember you upon my bed, and meditate on you in the watches of the night; for you have been my help, and in the shadow of your wings I will sing for joy. My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me.”
